Assassin. Private Investigator. Cat shifter.
Kat is used to killing people, but for a blank cheque, she's willing to do the opposite and help solve a murder - even though it sounds boring as hell. That is, until she finds some body parts in her fridge, makes friends with the neighbourhood cats and realises there may be an assassin better than her…
Suddenly, things have become purrfectly exciting.
**An urban fantasy full of cats, secrets and murders. This is a slow-burn reverse harem where Kat will find her love interests over time. Book one in the Catnip Assassins series.**
The kitschy fun of the first urban fantasy in the Catnip Assassins series from MacKinnon (Stolen by Them) more than makes up for any flaws in the plotting. In an alternate present-day British city teeming with shape-shifters, but without cars, computers, or guns, the sinister Pack works to put all shape-shifters under its control, whether or not they join willingly. When a mysterious stranger offers to remove the collar that keeps fierce jaguar-shifter Kat enslaved to the Pack, she eagerly accepts despite ambiguous strings attached. Kat uses her newfound freedom to launch Meow, a business specializing in contract killing. When a man hires Meow to find his brother's killer, Kat initially protests that the case is outside of her wheelhouse, but a blank check and permission to kill the murderer when she finds him persuade her to take the job. As more bodies turn up, Kat and her spy network comprising the city's stray cats discover that the murderer is targeting shifters. The procedural plot is somewhat muddled, but provides a welcome excuse to visit a promising, expansive new universe. This delightful paranormal mystery is perfect for fans of Nalini Singh.

Meow by Skye Mackinnon
Not your usual heroine .But still likable.Not really a romance ,but I enjoyed it.
A very entertaining and quick read. Plot kept my interest all the way through. Well worth the time investment. Looking forward to the book two.
Interesting Storyline (3.5⭐️)
Meow started off a little slow and so it took a bit for me to get into the story. It also took a while to warm up to the main character, Kat. Her demeanor was a little off putting. Honestly it wasn’t until Lennox was introduced into the story that I was drawn into it. That’s where things started to pick up and become more intriguing to me. The case that Kat is investigating becomes more complicated as she digs deeper and discovers that her murder victim may not have been as innocent as he seemed. It becomes a race against the clock to solve the mysteries uncovered and save hundreds of innocent lives.
This second half of the story captivated my attention with it’s twists and made me interested in continuing Kat and her team’s journey. I look forward to seeing how things develop.
